I've heard there is an effort in Australia to change the standard punctuation marks to this format: ' ˙ : ; , ,,

*sigh......*

*ellipses*

*........but mostly sigh*


ETA: We're Australian. We don't make an effort.

So do you think this has been what's missing from my life I mean really these little squiggles of your seem like they could be needed in a few highly selective situations

When I was little we were very poor and couldnt afford fancy punctuation. Except for the period. Which is so cheap we use it all the time. But thats all. Just the period. Period.

ETA my uncle had to have a procedure done; now the family owns a semi colon.

Maggie Maxwell

Manuel, you poor thing! No question marks, no commas, no exclamation points?

I heard some people were so poor they had to cut them in half.

That is all changed now.

Do not forget the poor interrobang.

Alas, its moment was a brief one.

Maggie Maxwell

You know what doesn't get enough respect?

~ The tilde. Poor, underappreciated tilde.

Namatu

It sounds so nice: tilde.

Maggie Maxwell
04-01-2014, 07:20 PM
It does. It's a soothing word. And it looks nice. Why'd hashtag have to be the one picked up? And @? Well, I can understand @, but hashtag? Come on, we could be saying ~Aliens instead of #Aliens. # already had a job as "pound".

Samsonet

I never understood that. What are we supposed to pound? Aliens?

Punctuation not Zathras strength. Zathrus now struggling with verb agreement.

Zathrus language have no pronoun.

Ketzel

Never mind, Zathras. Lots of us don't agree with verbs. I find them socially limited and narrow-minded, myself.

Same here...we could only afford the Wal-Marts store brand. The comma in the semi colon always fell off so then it just became a weirdly positioned period.

So - I think I just gave out 36 rep points. Though to be fair, about 33 of them were copy-pasted.

But :Hug2: for you all.


GROUP :Hug2:!!

Manuel Royal

Thanks for the rep points! That was great; now -- ha! -- I've got all the punctuation, & all 26 letters! Ha!

It begins.

We had lots of punctuation when I was a kid. There was a great heap of it out in the yard, waiting to be used, but it always worried me because there was a big question mark hanging over it.

From the day I was born I have been removing punctuation bit by bit from my life and soul now this person is trying put it all back
